AC/DC Releases Music Video for Single "Play Ball"

AC/DC have now released the official video for their single Play Ball from their upcoming album Rock or Bust. You can watch it above.

The video doesn't seem to be anything particularly special, but then again it doesn't need to be when it's AC/DC. All that matters is the loud rocking music. The clips are just of the band playing in between various sports and women scantily clad. Sounds about the norm for these guys, doesn't it? When you're known for being loud, rocking, and a bit obscene for 40 years you can pretty much get away with this kind of thing. If anything, it's kind of expected and anything else would just be a letdown.

Naturally original rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young is missing from the video due to his illness (dementia) causing him to retire. Replacing him on the album and in this video is his nephew Steven Young. Original drummer Phil Rudd is also missing due to what the band is publicly calling a "family emergency".

However, although the band has not made an official statement on the issue yet, they will be carrying on without Rudd because of his recent criminal publicity involving him trying to procure murder, making threats, and possession of meth.
